Easter Sunday - 8th April, 2012

Easter Sunday – 8 April, 2012
 
Happy Easter Everyone – hope you are all enjoying your roast dinners!  Many thanks to everyone for your encouraging messages – they really mean a lot to us and keep the spirits high.
 
It’s roughly mid day here now. We haven’t moved since last night – still in the tents.  The visibility isn’t good outside so we’re staying put, keeping warm and waiting for clearer skies.  Thankfully we took a chessboard with us – I spy got a tad boring!
 
Will try to update you tomorrow – as we inch closer to The Top of The World.
 
All the best
